powerpoint. let me take this moment to just explain how we are going to present this information. we will give you a little bit of history on the pier 70 as well as going through the plan itself. focus in on the key developments that we are working on and introduce the team that is going to be working on pier 70 or is working on pier 7 and talk a little bit about next steps. so just to remind you where pier 70 is located just south of mission bay you can see from this graphic. just along the water just south of mission bay and just before the trail, now closed power plant. just a little bit of history on pier 70. we began the... when it is plan was aproveds if 1997 and the plan included pier 70 and within the pier 70 plan, the 69 acre theres was a 12-acre opportunity site that was included in that original plan. this shows earlier was a 1990s view and you can see in the mission bay area how little development there was. and then the next slide you can see with pier 70 and the foreground how much new development there was. but when you go back to the slide from the 1990s, when the plan was
